Flat Mirrors are Optical Mirrors designed for a variety of applications, including beam steering or folding, interferometry, or as optical components within imaging systems. Additionally, Flat Mirrors are ideal for lab or OEM integration. Surface flatness is a measurement of the roughness of the surface. High surface flatness decreases the amount of light lost through dispersion.
Edmund Optics offers a wide selection of Optical Mirrors, including standard or precision Flat Mirrors. Standard Flat Mirrors feature the largest selection of substrates, sizes, or surface flatness. These mirrors are available with standard metallic mirror coatings, including Aluminum, Gold, Silver, or Dielectric. Precision Flat Mirrors are available in either Fused Silica or ZERODUR® substrates. ZERODUR® is ideal for applications where temperature fluctuation is a concern. Reflection coating options include Aluminum, Gold, or Silver. To increase durability, a protective layer of dielectric overcoat has been applied to the metallic coatings. Flat Mirror surface flatness include λ/4, λ/8, λ/10, or λ/20.
